It is of utmost importance that you understand this next aspect of prayer. Prayer is also an act of confrontation. Sin, righteousness, and judgment are involved in prayer. The Kingdom of God is advancing, and confrontation is inevitable. Side with the Holy Spirit and you will find victory in your prayer conquests. God wants to answer your prayers—always. It is helpful to remember that satan is called the father of lies because he employs lies to try to have victory over us. If you really want to combat evil spirits, then label, pull down, and expose everything they say and do. Then, by binding and driving them out of your midst, you have done successful warfare. Then you must educate everyone involved with the truth to bring deliverance so that the enemy cannot come back and rebuild.
There is a fellowship of the wonderful, majestic Holy Spirit that every believer should seek to encounter. This will enhance your walk with God by developing this aspect of fellowship in your relationship with Him. We must not grieve the Holy Spirit by what we do and say in our life. If He is grieved, it is because we strayed from our path of destiny.
I know that I must continually exercise my authority as a believer. Angels will be sent to answer our prayers and assist us in an awesome, supernatural way when we exercise the authority that God has imparted to us.
